Dark Horse Presents #56 - Frank Miller, John Byrne art


Dark Horse Presents v1 #56, 1991 - Hit by a careening car, Marv questions his sanity when he sees the attacker is his just deceased lover, Goldie. This Sin City episode is especially fast paced. Frank Miller employs mostly horizontal panels, reinforcing the film noir influence. The artwork maintains its graphic quality as the overall storyline reaches its midpoint. In a separate tale, John Byrne reveals the Next Men as part of a top secret, perhaps illegal government program. Though straightforward and competent, his illustrations show no lack of enthusiasm or effort. Other artists in this issue include Tony Akins. This is number 3 of 4 Dark Horse Presents issues with Byrne art and/or covers and number 6 of 12 Dark Horse Presents issues with Miller art and/or covers.
